SAPRadio Changing the Game with HR: Do CHROs need a new conversation?

DON’T MISS SAPRadio Changing the Game with HR Episode 2: “CHROs: Time for a New Conversation” – on Changing the Game with HR Radio – June 9 at 11 AM PT / 2 PM ET –  Follow us on Twitter via #SAPRadio.

This episode is part of a 10-episode SAP SuccessFactors radio series that started on May 26 and will continue to air every other Thursday at 11 AM PT/ 2 PM ET on the VoiceAmerica network Business Channel, SAP Radio Changing the Game with HR. The series will run through to the end of September and all shows will be recorded and available for download or playing via the website. Our first show started at the top:  HR in the boardroom and is available here.


Since the dawn of time, or at least over the past few decades, most people in the HR space have been scratching their heads trying to figure out how CHROs can earn a seat at the executive table. Some CHROs have succeeded in lending their business chops and key workforce insights to strategic discussions while others still struggle with moving beyond tactical operational planning and execution.

As we look forward, trends in workforce demographics and how people work may create a need to change the conversation that CHROs must have about their roles and the roles of their organizations. Is the future of HR no HR? Or does the role of HR, and therefore the role of the CHRO, evolve because business is evolving?

There are some core functions of HR that just can’t go away. As long as people work for businesses, they will need to organized (and re-organized), recruited, hired, paid developed, promoted, and retired. It’s the role that HR takes in representing the people of the business, in representing how the human capital of the people can be harnessed collectively and individually, how people can be actively engaged to contribute to customer, innovation and financial performance goals.

The radio show will cover the convergence of business and HR trends and the implications, including:

  • Building transformational value-based relationships throughout the business
  • Engaging permanent and external workers in new collaboration models
  • Using consumer-style tools and social HR to improve engagement
  • Leveraging HR to help improve business strategies

Join host Bonnie D. Graham as she talks with panelists Tim Good of Accenture, Erica Volini of Deloitte, Brigette McInnis-Day of SAP and author Dan Ward.
